Are you ever tempted to blurt out your opinion even though it might not be needed?
Do you ever feel like you have to have the final word in an argument?
Do you ever feel required to say something even though it might be better to remain silent and offer a prayer instead?
I have. And that’s why I love these words…
Give me grace to remain silent when it is not necessary to speak.
Often, the need is not for another opinion or another round of arguing, but for silence and truth-knowing. The effect of a shut mouth and a silent prayer of Truth can be far more influential than an open mouth and unwelcome words.
